After a very busy summer on the York Beltline Trail, the long awaited new trail entrance off of Castlefield Avenue is finally under construction.
This new entrance will make the trail fully accessible to people using mobility devices and easier to access for cyclists and pedestrians of all ages and abilities. The new entrance will also act as a more prominent and visible gateway to the York Beltline.
Work has begun on this new accessible entrance and is expected to be completed by the end of 2016. During construction, the trail is closed between Caledonia Road and Ronald Avenue. Public notification signs were installed earlier this fall at all entry points informing the community of the closure and alternate bypass route.
This is a major step in our ongoing efforts to improve the York Beltline. In addition to the clean-ups, tree plantings, new public art, and community events, trail users can look forward to improved signage, an extension of the trail to Marlee Avenue, improved community gardens, enhanced entry points off Dufferin, and more.
